What GRC says: 2012-13: After such a strong first half, Mrazek battled inconsistency for much of the second half before turning things up in the postseason. He had back-to-back shutouts twice in the playoffs and was the difference most nights, giving Tatar a run for his money as MVP. The confident young netminder still has some work to do with his positioning, puck handling, etc. but will only get better as he plays more, and should come back ready for another run next season.
Fall 2012: Mraszek has established himself as one of the bright lights of the Wings' amateur prospects, and will begin his on the job training as a pro this season. He is expected to start the season in Toledo (ECHL), but should play his way into the AHL and possibly the starters job by Christmas. Spring 2011: Mrazek had a great camp last fall and then went back and had a great season for Ottawa (OHL). The Wings rewarded his strong season by giving him some pro experience with the Griffins as they wound down the season. He isn't expected to get any playing time in the AHL this time around, and will return to his Junior team again next season.
